The Sakura is here! Now for the next 1 week or so. Next to the castle is where you cab get boat ride for about 1000yen and it's a nice 30mins cruise down the river. We had a blast taking pictures of the beautiful scenery here. We are very lucky to come at this right time!

It was a nice place to visit and was in the centre of Toyama city. There were no entrance fees and it had a pleasant garden to stroll around.

Much smaller as compared to other castles in Japan, but the park was quiet and did not have many people. It has a nice garden good for photographs. Good place to chill, relax and reflection
